2020 BIDIME (Resp : N RIS,  INRAE)

BIodiversity of trichograms, DIversification of biocontrol products and new Economic Models.

Logo du projet BIDIME

As part of the EcophytoPIC plan, the CRB EP-Coll is involved, for a period of 36 months, in a collaboration between INRAE ​​(ISA & CBGP laboratories) and UCA (GREDEG laboratory), as well as socio-economic partners (ASTREDHOR, BIOLINE AGROSCIENCES, CA06-CREAM).

BIDIME proposes to supply a set of 5 innovations, (i) a "process" for optimizing biological control auxiliaries, (ii) new strains of auxiliaries, (iii) the development of a genomic Quality Control tool, (iv) the development of a video-phenotyping "package" to accelerate and optimize the evaluation in the laboratory of candidate strains, (v) the evaluation of an alternative business model aimed at facilitating the diversification and deployment of biocontrol products, particularly in the case of "nested markets".

Deployment in the fields will be tested in the Alpes-Maritimes, where both ornamental crops with high added value and / or strong environmental requirements coexist, but also market gardening. The biological control auxiliaries will be the trichograms, oophagous parasitoids capable of parasitizing a great diversity of Lepidoptera and, as such, a still under-exploited reservoir of biological control solutions.

2018 - 2021 Fondation Pierre Vérots (Resp : G. GROUSSIER, ISA)

In 2019 and 2020, the BRC EP-Coll collaborates with the Foundation “Pierre Verots” ( in order to investigate the biodiversity of Trichogramma and other oophagous parasitoids on the Praillebard domain. The overall budget is about 15K€.


From 2015 to 2019, the BRC EP-Coll leads the WP5 (From collection to transfer) and contributed to the WP2 (Endosymbionts) and WP3 (Phenotyping), of the TRIPTIC project (Trichogramma for Crop Protection: Pangenomics, Traits and Invasive Capacities), funded by the ANR (French National Agency for research).


From 2013 to 2016, as part of the COLBICS (Collaborations to Boost Research and Development Dynamics in Biological Control of Agricultural Pests) project supported by the FP7-PEOPLE-IAPP - Academia Partnerships and Pathways Intersectoral, the BRC EP-Coll has developed skills and knowledge in the field of molecular characterization and integrative taxonomy of Trichogramma. The BRC EP-Coll also contributes to the genetic improvement of T. brassicae against Ostrinia nubilalis.

2013 SPE (Resp : A. CRUAUD, CBGP)

In 2013 and 2014, the INRAE department SPE (Plant Health and Environment) has supported up to 28K€, the project TRICHO-NG led by A Cruaud in order to develop and analyze NGS markers for Trichogramma (Hym. Chalcidoidea).  The BRC EP-Coll was in charge of a more precise evaluation of RAD-seq markers at the individual level.

2013 GIS IBiSA (Resp : N. RIS, ISA)

Within the 2013 call for projects supported by the GIS IBiSA, the BRC EP-Coll has received a financial support of € 7k. These credits were allocated to the acquisition of a sample management system (e-SIToul Barcode), to the development of the quality approach and to the development of an automated method of phenotyping.
